Daily Habits to Reduce Redness: Simple Practices for a Calmer, Healthier Complexion

Managing redness requires daily care and attention. Implementing simple yet effective habits in your daily routine can significantly minimise redness and promote a calmer, healthier complexion. We speak to hundreds of people with redness each and every week and have put together a list of daily habits that help alleviate redness:

1. Gentle Cleansing Techniques:

  • Choose Mild Cleansers: Opt for gentle cleansers suitable for sensitive skin. Harsh cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to irritation and redness. We recommend a cleanser of cream consistency, such as our Anti Redness Cream Cleanser.



  • Soft Cleansing Movements: Use gentle, circular motions with your fingertips or a soft cloth to cleanse the skin. Avoid aggressive rubbing, which can aggravate redness.

2. Avoid Hot Water:

  • Opt for Lukewarm Water: Hot water can dilate blood vessels and worsen redness. Use lukewarm water for cleansing and rinsing to prevent unnecessary irritation.

  • Cool Compresses: Applying a cool, damp cloth or using a gentle, lukewarm compress can soothe redness by constricting blood vessels and reducing inflammation.

3. Moisturise Regularly:

  • Hydrating Moisturisers: Choose gentle hydrating moisturisers suitable for sensitive skin. Keeping the skin well-moisturised helps maintain its barrier function and minimises redness. Our Anti Redness Bundle contains our cleanser, serum and specifically our Green Tea Infused Hydrating Moisturiser and provides a simple, gentle and easy to follow morning and evening routine to manage your redness.


  • Hydration Throughout the Day: Consider using a facial mist or hydrating spray to keep your skin refreshed and hydrated, especially in dry or heated environments.

4. Sun Protection:

  • Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen: Apply sunscreen with a high SPF daily, even on cloudy days. Sun exposure can trigger redness, so protecting your skin is essential.

  • Protective Clothing: Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when outdoors to shield your face from the sun's harmful rays.

5. Stress Management:

  • Mindfulness Techniques: Practice stress-relieving activities like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises. Stress can exacerbate redness, so managing it is crucial.

  • Adequate Rest: PrioritiSe sufficient sleep to allow your skin to rejuvenate and reduce inflammation.

6. Diet and Hydration:

  • Balanced Diet: Incorporate skin-friendly foods rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. Stay hydrated by drinking enough water throughout the day.

  • Limit Triggers: Be mindful of foods or beverages that tend to trigger redness, and consider reducing or avoiding them to minimise flare-ups.

Implementing these simple yet impactful daily habits can significantly reduce redness and promote a calmer, more balanced complexion. Consistency is key, so make these practices a part of your daily skincare routine to effectively manage redness and maintain healthier, happier skin.
